wow. I’m surprised nobody has answered this. I am also interested in the idea of one of these vacuum cleaners. I have a Shark and even though it does an excellent job it is heavy & bulky to get around so I have been pondering the stick ones. I guess my wonderment is around whether the battery is strong enough for the vacuum to suck up the dirt properly. If you went ahead and bought one I would be interested to know how you have found it.

We have a Dyson and are very pleased with it. It sits on the wall in the laundry and is easy to grab if needed to clean up the odd mess. We have a 2 bedroom house of 90 square metres and the battery lasts fine when doing the whole house. The only downsides are: 1) the collector container is small and needs emptying regularly (twice for a whole house clean, and: 2) the price. They were close to $1,000
Plenty of suck and easy to use.

By a Dyson pet on special $500 to $700. absolutely brilliant, I just clean up mess as it occurs. House is 200 sq meters and I can do house on one charge… sometimes empty twice but it’s easy that’s no problem. It suck bejesus out of the carpet. best cleaner I have ever had and brilliant on stairs. Will never go back to old style cleaner ever ! I personally think the price for this cleaner is worth every cent.#1743753huiatahiMemberMember since: March 22, 2017

I have a Hoover ultra performer and Im very pleased with it. Very easy to handle, sucks well. My only small complaint is that the dust container is a bit on the small side

I have an Electolux ergorapido & it is very good. I tried a Zip one which was much more clumsy in between my 1st Elecctrolux one ,which lasted 12 years & this new one. The zip was not a patch on either of the Electrolux ones & I gave it away after a few months. Think I paid a bit over $200 for this one when on a sale at Briscoes.

We have a Dyson stick vacuum, & have had it for 2 years. Its great, although I wish it kept its charge a little longer as our house is reasonably large. I find the dust receptacle a little small & not too easy to empty due to its shape (inside of the actual receptacle I’m meaning.) However the suction is fantastic. Dyson may have possibly improved on the dirt receptacle part by now though. It hangs on the wall in the laundry out of the way. I’d never go back to lugging a heavy vacuum cleaner around now after having this one, as its so easy to push around. Its fantastic!
